Hertz Van Rental - Answered a Question by van der Woude (12 Aug 08 23:45)

I am thinking this rule is only perhaps true for ladys - yes? If not so, this is something up with which you should not put.

As a lady answering this question, I would love to take a different dress for each evening but reality means I don't. What I do take though is at least 3 long evening gowns,for formal evenings ,a few calf length dressy dresses and a variety of skirts and glitzy tops. I can then wear different tops and mix and match. Don't forget that you have to hang all this up in sometimes limited wardrobe space. My husband takes his DJ, a dark suit, smart trousers, couple of jackets and numerous shirts and tops. Hope this helps.

Definitely not. I cruise with P&O. Usually on a 14 night cruise there are 4 formal nights, and as the other lady states a long black skirt with different tops, or you can certainly double up if you haven't a lot of evening wear. The rest of the evenings are usually 4 informal - smart trousers and tops and informal similar to what you would wear in a holiday resort. Less formal cruise lines such as Ocean Village are very casual. Hope this helps and enjoy!

The girls are quick off the mark here but just in case you mean dress as in style of clothing then the answer is yes there is a different style for each evening on most ships these are: Formal, dinner jacket and black tie or a dark suit for men and a dressy outfit for the ladies. Informal, when men would normally wear a jacket and tie and ladies something comfortably smart. Casual, when you can wear casual gear with the usual exception of shorts and sometimes jeans. Other ships do not have these dress codes, some expecting no real style at all, others stating that smart casual will be the code for the whole of the cruise. This does not preclude anyone from dressing formally though. Hope that is understandable...Alstublieft . Neil.

I would think the lady meant evening dress as being formal. Am I correct.

Brits and Tips.

By Sam Smith

We Brits as a nation have always been somewhat uncomfortable with the whole tipping scenario. Ok, in a restaurant environment maybe, but when was the last time you found yourself handing over extra cash to the nice lady on the checkout in Sainsburys or the very nice man who changed your car tyres in Kiwk Fit? Were they not all just doing their jobs, albeit well?This poses the question as to why we have to either pre-pay what can amount to noticeable sums of money when booking a cruise, or hav...

Symphony of the Seasmy trip...

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

So as I said last time I loved Royal Caribbean’s latest ship Symphony of the Seas.. I wasn’t too sure beforehand if she was going to be just too big, but I can safely say although without doubt a huge ship Symphony doesn’t feel too big once you’re on board. In fact all the different neighbourhood’s and places on board are fantastic, so much choice. I often talk to my customers who are new to cruising and they worry that they will feel enclosed and trapped, with ...

Cruise lines start returning t...

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Many cruise lines stopped visiting Turkey itineraries after the military coup attempt in July of 2016 due to security concerns and Turkish calls on cruise itineraries are certainly a lot less common than they used to be.It seems that some cruise companies are now starting to re-introduce some Turkish ports of call with the majority now calling at Ephesus (Kusadasi) after security experts have given the all-clear.There still seems to be a massive drop in Turkish cruise destinations compared to...
